Met Office – Yellow Warning of Wind – Friday 3 February 2017

Yellow Warning of Wind for West Midlands

Yellow Warning of Wind for West Midlands : Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent & Telford and Wrekin valid from 0600 – 2355 on Friday 03 February 2107.

There is the potential for very strong winds to cross parts of England and Wales on Friday, with gusts of 60 to 70 mph in places and perhaps over 80 mph in exposed coastal areas.

There remains considerable uncertainty around the developments  – if such winds were to occur, we would expect damage to trees and perhaps to buildings, possible disruption to power supplies, as well as delayed travel.  

A number of potentially vigorous low pressure systems are likely to move quickly towards northwest Europe later 
this week. One of these, on Friday, may affect parts of southern parts of the UK. However it is worth stressing 
that there are a number of scenarios in which the strongest winds miss the UK altogether. Even so, spells of wet
and windy weather will be affecting many areas later this week.
